Escape to Miami Triathlon 2018

The Mak Cycle Escape to Miami Triathlon is an experience unlike any other.

South Florida plays host to many unique and exciting events year-round, but none are quite like the Escape to Miami Triathlon. Each September, triathletes from all over descend upon Miami for the multisport competition, which treats athletes and spectators to scenic sights and sounds. It’s one of those races you won’t forget. 


If you’re participating in the Miami Triathlon, you’re in for a treat. You’ll start in the waters off of Margaret Pace Park and head inland to the infamous Escape Island. From there, the bike course provides a unique and scenic view of Miami that continues until you run across the finish line. It’s called the Escape Route for a reason, but when you finish, you’ll have an accomplishment worth boasting about!

Spectators and Volunteers

As a spectator, you get to take in all the views without having to break a sweat. If you’re interested in volunteering for the South Beach Triathlon, however, you’re more than welcome! Whether you’re a first-time volunteer or a veteran, volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and support the athletes. Plus, you’ll receive lots of exciting goodies as a thank you for lending a hand.

The 2018 Escape to Miami Triathlon is a can’t-miss event for serious triathletes. If you need a place to relax and rest before and after the race, look no further than the Hilton Miami Downtown. Our rooftop pool offers scenic views of the city, which looks especially grand after you’ve conquered it, and our location is convenient for exploring South Beach and many other Miami attractions. Book your stay with us today and challenge yourself to the Mak Cycle Escape to Miami Triathlon.

Miami Dolphins Football: Experience It Live

Catch all the action of Dolphins Football, up close and personal, at Hard Rock Stadium.

A new season of Miami Dolphins football is nearly upon us, and with it comes a new wave of excitement. The 2018-19 Dolphins are on the cusp of achieving something great, and they’ll have their fair share of exciting battles along the way to prove it.

Season Schedule  Football On Field

The Dolphins will kick off the pre-season against their in-state foe, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and return to Hard Rock Stadium a few weeks later to clash with the Baltimore Ravens. The regular season schedule is filled with intriguing games, with many of those matchups taking place at home. The season opener against a talented Tennessee Titans squad will be a thriller, along with early games against the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions. Later in the season, fans will need to gear up in their aqua, orange and white to root for the Dolphins in tough battles against the rival Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Experience It In-Person

Watching the Dolphins from your couch is fine, but if you’re a die-hard fan who watches all the games, you need to experience it for yourself. There’s nothing quite like seeing the field up-close. The plays look faster and more intense because they’re happening live right in front of you, not on delay on your TV. Plus, with individual game tickets starting at just $15, you don’t have to empty your wallet to go.

The Hilton Miami Downtown is well-equipped to host your trip to see the Dolphins this season. We’re just a quick drive from the stadium, as well as many other unique and exciting Miami attractions. Book your stay with us today for a Dolphins game experience you won’t forget.
